Often, when I pray, I thank the Lord for the reality of His presence in my life.  Sometimes I wonder if that is a true statement or just one that expresses a sentiment that sounds really good. The deficit is with me not with Him. You know, it sounds good for us as Christians to express confidence in God’s presence, but do we really believe that it’s true?  Is God here?  Does He walk with us in a very real fashion? And do we live our lives in such a way that would demonstrate our confidence in His presence?  These are all questions that cause me to pause and think carefully about what I say and how I live. There’s a song that we used to sing frequently that sums this up.  It’s called “Share His Love.” 


The love of God is broader than earth’s vast expanse,

‘Tis deeper and wider than the sea.

Love reaches out to all to bring abundant life,

For God so loved the world his only Son he gave.


Share his love by telling what the Lord has done for you, Share his love by sharing of your faith,

And show the world that Jesus Christ is real to you every moment, every day.


Now it’s that last line that really has meaning.  “And show the world that Jesus Christ is real to you.”  That drives the question…do we do that?  We talk about the reality of Him in our lives, but do we live that reality?  Testimony is so important, but if testimony and our walk don’t match, the testimony becomes meaningless. 


1 Timothy 2:5&6, reads “For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time.” The testimony is consistent with the act.  The Lord came and did what was needed and that was the testimony of His life on earth.  He said what He would do and then did it.  No dispute.  And we, as His followers must do the same.  If we say that He is with us, we must live in a consistent fashion with that statement.  That then becomes our testimony.  It’s an expression of what is true in our lives.


Father, I am thankful for the reality of Your presence in our lives.  Thank you for the sacrifice of Jesus that makes it possible for us to walk with You.  I pray today that each of us would take seriously the fact that You are here and live lives that would give consistent testimony of that fact and our faith.  May we truly be real lights in dark places.


Blessings to you.

I just typed 2022 and did it correctly…but I’ve done it wrong several times already.  Those are “Senior Moments” and they seem to be coming more frequently these days.  I guess I should blame it on COVID or old age or something.  It can’t really be my fault…can it?  Sometimes I must admit that I was simply not paying attention.  But, you know, I’ve been hearing that all of my life!  Even as a child in school, my teachers often challenged me to come back into the room instead of gazing out of some very interesting window.  I suppose I was practicing for “senior moments” at a very early age. 


Nowadays, everything that seems to be a deficiency in performance is given a title or some formal description as if we can’t make mistakes, it must be some illness or something.  And it really cannot be sinful in some way because that would make me responsible for my own actions.  God forbid that I would be held accountable for my own actions!  I clearly was mistreated as a child or was denied some attention that would have contributed to a much better outcome!


I was listening to a song earlier today that reminded me of Jeremiah 8:22, where he was calling the people to repentance and telling them why things were going so badly.  He even included his own sin in the cause of the calamity.  The song is, “There Is a Balm in Gilead.”  Now some who read this might be thinking, “what is balm and where is Gilead?”  It’s a good question.  Well, in Jeremiah 8:22, it says, “Is there not balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there?” Gilead was a place that was known for a certain balm that physicians used from a tree that was native to the region, that was known to bring healing.  And Jeremiah was asking the question, “you know where to go for healing…why don’t you go there?”  Of course, the healing that he is referring to in the passage is the healing from sin.  Go to God, receive forgiveness…but they wouldn’t.  Just like they wouldn’t go to Gilead for the healing that was there.


The song says,


There is a balm in Gilead to make the wounded whole;

There is a balm in Gilead to heal the sin-sick soul.


What was true for Israel is true for us.  There is a Physician who wants to bring healing into our lives…but we must go to Him to receive what He has for us.  Don’t look for reasons to explain the mistakes of life…just learn from them.  Face honestly the reasons for deficiencies and trust the Lord for the solution.  He loves us and wants what is best for us…He died for us to prove it.


Lord, thank you for the new year and allowing us the privilege to live it.  May we be faithful with the time you have given us.  May we honestly face our deficiencies and sinfulness so that we might receive the true balm that comes only from you.  It’s a balm that heals and restores and brings comfort…true comfort…whatever the need.

Happy New Year!!  It is a great time to reflect on the year that has just ended and consider what the Lord has for us in the year that is just beginning.  There are so many things that are consuming our thoughts these days.  Most of which we have no control over.  The world seems to be on fire and governments are scrambling to figure out what to do next.  It really demonstrates how truly powerless we are.  Those that sit in seats of “power” try to pontificate and criticize their political opponents’ lack of ability, when their own efforts seem to be ineffective as well.  All the time they all seem feckless in their attempts to bring about change that is meaningful.


For us as believers, our perspective on all that plagues the world should be different.  The power does not dwell in the halls of governments, it is occupied by our Lord.  He is the only One who can bring change to the world’s situation…to disease…to conflict…to peace.  Only He is the source of solution to mankind’s deepest problems.  It begins with salvation.  Apart from salvation in Christ, we are lost…not just spiritually, but functionally.  Nothing in life makes sense apart from a personal relationship with Christ.  The writer of Ecclesiastes summed it all up in chapter 12, when he said, “The conclusion, when all has been heard, is; fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person.  For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden whether it is good or evil.” In spite of this truth, our world seems to live in a fashion that is more consistent with the last phrase in the book of Joshua “…everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”  This is the world in which we live.


So, what are we to do?  First, trust Christ as your personal Lord and Savior.  Give Him your life and allow Him to guide you in all things.  Next, pray.  Pray that His power and grace will be seen by the rest of the world, and they too will turn to Him and seek His will and way.  Next, live.  Live in such a fashion that others would be drawn to Him because of your testimony of faith and strength in Christ.  It’s the only hope for the world…that they would surrender to Christ and live His life in this world.  It’s how we have joy in the middle of illness and trial. 


The old hymn really sums up our responsibility in the middle of it all…


Then live for Christ both day and night, Be faithful, be brave, and true,

And lead the lost to life and light; Let others see Jesus in you.

Let others see Jesus in you, Let others see Jesus in you;

Keep telling story, be faithful and true, Let others see Jesus in you.


Wow!  Simple song…profound truth.  In these days of trouble and fear, let others see Jesus in you in a way that is winsome.  In a way that the Lord can use to draw others to Himself.


Lord, help us to live in such a way as to communicate our faith in You and our rock solid trust in You to bring us through the storms.  These are stormy days but love You and trust You and are so thankful that You are with us minute by minute.

Well, this is the last Senior Moment before Christmas and I pray that each of you will have a wonderful and blessed time with friends and family.  What a great time of year as we remember the beginning of our Lord’s life on this planet.  He came that we might have life and have it abundantly.  I trust that is true for you…that you have received Him as your personal Lord and are living in the joy that comes from a life that is hidden in Christ!!


We will worship together this Friday evening as we celebrate the Lord’s death until He comes back for us.  That’s right.  Remembering His death at the time of His birth.  You see, it’s all part of the Gospel.  His virgin birth, His life, His death, and His resurrection are all integral parts of the Gospel story.  Don’t ever leave any of it out…it’s the Gospel.  And it’s all miraculous.  God’s plan for our redemption is beyond our ability to comprehend and explain in human terms.  It’s by faith that we believe and receive the truth that we are sinners and cannot save ourselves.  Apart from what God has done in Christ Jesus, we are hopelessly lost.  Praise be to Him that we can have life because of the sacrifice that Christ made on our behalf.  And when He completed His life here on earth, He rose from the dead, defeating death, and making it possible for us to have eternal life.  Praise Him!!


So, I hope that as you celebrate the birth of Christ, don’t forget the rest of the story.  There is a hymn that we used to sing frequently when I was younger.  It’s called “O Sing and song of Bethlehem.”  It tells the entire story of Christ.  The last verse is as follows:


O sing a song of Calvary, Its glory and dismay;

Of Him who hung upon the tree and took our sins away.

For He who died on Calvary Is risen from the grave,

And Christ, our Lord, by heav’n adored, Is mighty now to save.


That verse finishes the story that is begun in verse one:


O sing a song of Bethlehem, Of shepherds watching there,

And of the news that came to them From angels in the air.

The light that sone in Bethlehem Fills all the world today;

Of Jesus’ birth and peace on earth The angels sing alway.


So with that I will wish you a Merry Christmas and pray that you and your family are truly blessed in these days. 


Father, thank you for the blessing of Christmas and the story of Your Son who came and lived and died and lived again that we might have His life…eternal life.  Thank you for this.  I pray that each person who reads this, knows You.  Thank you, Father, for Your perfect expression of love.

There’s an old Christmas Carol that I’ve always liked.  It’s from the 1600’s and is probably why I like it…it’s old and decrepit…😊 It’s really attributed to being about the coming of the wise men and is called “Break Forth, O Beauteous Heavenly Light.”  Have you heard of it?  The tune is probably familiar to some degree, but I’m not sure I’ve ever heard it sung in church.  The text, however, is telling.  It says:


Break forth, O beauteous heav’nly light, And usher in the morning;

O shepherds, shrink not with affright, But hear the angel’s warning.

The Child, now weak in infancy, Our confidence and joy shall be,

The pow’r of Satan breaking, Our peace eternal making.


Break forth, O beauteous heav’nly light, To herald our salvation;

He stoops to earth – the God of might, Our hope and expectation.

He comes in human flesh to dwell, Our God with us, Immanuel,

The night of darkness ending, Our fallen race befriending.


It uses words to describe our Lord that are accurate, but at the same time reveal what He actually did as our Savior.  He came as a weak infant but in so doing He broke the power of Satan and provided for us eternal peace with the Father.  He was the God of might but He came in human flesh and ended our night of darkness and made us His friends rather than His enemies.  I talked last week about remembering that His birth and infancy were just a moment in time and that we should not forget His capabilities.


He, indeed, stooped to earth, but He never stopped being the God of might.  We should never forget this.  During His entire time on earth, He never acquiesced His power, or His identity as God.  He limited Himself during childhood and by the fact that He was born like we are…but He is God.  During His crucifixion, He allowed those men to do what they did, but He never became less than who He, in fact, was and is today.  It’s an amazing thing to comprehend and I’m not sure that we fully can.  It’s part of the wonder that is represented by who He actually is. I think that in fear we sometimes do this.  In our minds, we make Him less than who He is because we are uncomfortable with His identity.  We redefine Him in a way that makes us more comfortable. He’s the “man upstairs,” “my buddy,” “my friend,” and other anthropomorphistic statements.  We want to make Him like us rather than becoming more like Him. 


Romans 13:14, records the commandment, “But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts.”  In other words, become like Him and don’t allow our feelings to dictate the relationship by minimizing His attributes.  We should never forget who we are in comparison to Him.


Lord, help us to walk faithfully, meekly, in a fashion that is consistent with whom You have made us to be.  Thank you for coming to earth and giving your life that we might have life.

Is it possible that during this time of the year we become so focused on shepherds, angels, innkeepers, animals in a barn, and even the Baby Himself that we lose sight of the reason behind it all?  It’s the quintessential “senior moment.”  One of the characteristics of those moments is becoming so focused on the noise that is generated, that we lose sight of the most important part of the other more important parts of whatever is going on. That was a confusing statement, but that’s what “senior moments” produce…confusion.


Christ with us…for a time on this earth…and now with us through His presence for all eternity. 

Fanny Crosby wrote:


All the way my Savior leads me, Cheers each winding path I tread,

Gives me grace for every trial, Feeds me with the living bread;

Tho’ my weary steps my falter, And my soul athirst may be,

Gushing from the Rock before me, Lo! A spring of joy I see;

Gushing from the Rock before me, Lo! A spring of joy I see.


He came as a baby, but He grew to be a man, and He lived and He died and He rose again, and is with us forevermore.  The birth of Christ was a moment in time, but the life of Christ is eternal, and He is with us.  He leads us all the way and gives us grace for every trial.  And trials are coming to each of us in a way that He can be glorified as He leads us.  But since our relationship with Him is sealed by His grace and mercy we can trust Him in all things…like the hymn says.  Just think about who wrote the hymn and the challenges of her life. In the third verse of the song she says, All the way my Savior leads me, Oh, the fullness of His love! His love is full and the joy received transcends the trials of this life.


Peter, preaching in Acts 3, said, Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord. Even in trials, the “times of refreshing” will come from His presence. 


Thank you, Father, for the reality of Your presence in our lives.  We are truly grateful that you are with us in every step, on every journey, in every day.  May we live in a way that reflects gratitude and rock-solid faith in what You have done for us.  During this Christmas season help us to remember that Jesus is alive now and not just the baby in the manger.


Blessings to you.

O come, Thou Day-spring, come and cheer our spirits by Thine advent here;

Disperse the gloomy clouds of night, and death’s dark shadows put to flight.


O come, Thou Wisdom from on high, and order all things, far and nigh;

To us the path of knowledge show, and cause us in her ways to go.


Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, of Israel!


Advent is upon us.  A time when we think about the celebration of the impending birth of Christ.  It’s a wonderful time…one that should be focused on Christ and what He has done for us.  The words of the hymn above challenge us to be thoughtful about the real importance of His birth.  Death’s dark shadows have been put to flight.  I was thinking about this earlier as one of our dear friends went to be with the Lord.  The dark shadows have been “put to flight” and the glorious recognition of being in the presence of the Lord have replaced the shadows. 


The second verse of the hymn talks about “knowledge” and being taught to follow the path of “knowledge.”  Of course, knowledge of God and His ways brings us to a path of peace and faith that changes us into the image of Christ.  What a blessing and what a joy.  When you and I walk in the knowledge of God, we are changed and have the real opportunity to be a blessing and to be used of God for His purpose. Hallelujah!!


Sometimes, the rather extended “senior moment” comes into play when we forget who we are and our purpose for being here.  Christmas, strangely enough, is perfect time to do that.  We get so consumed by the world’s values relative to Christmas that forget who we are and what our biblical response to the birth of Christ should be.  It’s a wonderful time for evangelism in that while we are giving gifts to friends and family, we can make the connection to the Gospel and the greatest gift of all.  New birth.  It’s an eternal gift that Christ offers to those who believe.  This Friday, some of you and I will travel to Kentucky to share Christmas gifts with a group of young people.  I will have the opportunity to share the Christmas story from God’s Word and also a testimony of how He has saved and changed my life.  I am grateful for that and look forward to offering those who hear it the possibility of receiving a gift that will never end.  What a joy!!!


Luke wrote that the angels declared, “for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”  It is Christ and He is Lord.  Don’t ever forget that.  Christmas has been diminished to gift giving and over-eating, but don’t forget that it marks the incarnational entrance of Christ, the Lord onto the planet.  And He came that you and I might be redeemed for all eternity.  And that…is a big deal.  I am so grateful and will never be the same as a result. I pray God’s richest blessing on each of you who read this.

It’s Thanksgiving week and many are making big plans for the day…some are traveling, and some are staying close with family and, possibly, friends.  What a great time to be thinking about the blessings of God. I’m not going to go into great detail here about how every day should be Thanksgiving for the believer…you already know that. I am concerned, however, that we do take the daily blessings of life for granted. We have so much more than we need, and God really has promised to provide our needs. So, we are blessed beyond measure.


When I think back on the year, with so much sickness and awareness of sickness…God has continued to bless those who are trusting in Him. And even those who don’t trust Him are enjoying the blessings of living in a world created by Him and filled with the provisions that are provided for the believer and unbeliever alike. God gives and gives but He is often ignored and sometimes even scorned. I grieve for those who don’t know Him personally or know of Him but consciously exclude Him from their lives. How sad indeed.


So, let’s make sure today that we have it right with the One Who created us. Pastor Bobby has been preaching through Romans 3, which reveals our need for Him in a very clear fashion.  We need Him and there is nothing we can do to make ourselves good enough for Him.  Verse 23 of that chapter makes that clear. Acknowledge you sin and need to Him. God will give to us His salvation but not because we are good or have done the right things to earn it…because no one can do that. We all are sinners and need salvation. It is a gift (see Ephesians 2:8,9), and one that He will give if you come to Him by faith, asking for forgiveness and committing your life to Him, to be a follower of Him for all of your days.  Yes, it’s giving control of your life over to Him…and many of us don’t like that.  We are fiercely independent, and our independence will lead to separation from God if we don’t surrender.  It’s one thing to surrender to an enemy who hates you and everything about you. It’s a completely different thing to surrender to One Who loves you and gave His life for you and has the power to completely transform your life into one of blessing.  God loves you.


Remember this old hymn:


Just as I am without one plea, but that Thy blood was shed for me;
And that Thou bid’st me come to Thee; Oh, Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, Thou wilt receive; Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
Because Thy promise I believe; Oh, Lamb of God, I come, I come.


Believe His promise today and receive the joy of His salvation.


Lord, I pray today for many to trust You and follow You. We have so much for which to be thankful, most of all for Jesus and the life that we can have in Him. Thank you, Father, for loving us so much that you gave your Son for our salvation.  We love you and are thankful to You.


Blessings and Happy Thanksgiving…

My hope is in the Lord who gave himself for me,

And paid the price of all my sin at Calvary.


No merit of my own his anger to suppress,

My only hope is found in Jesus’ righteousness.


And now for me he stands before the father’s throne.

He shows his wounded hands, and names me as his own.


For me he died, for me he lives, and everlasting life and light he freely gives.


Pastor Bobby has been preaching through Romans 3 for the last couple of weeks and it has been a powerful time of teaching and confrontation.  Confrontation in the sense that this passage reveals in graphic detail how sinful I am…it’s hard to think about.  In spite of everything that I might try to do that is good or acceptable to God, the fact is that I always fall short of His high standard.  Perfection. 


The good news is, that there is hope.  The hymn above demonstrate clearly that our hope is not in ourselves or our performance…it’s in the Lord.  Praise Him!!!  This is the time of the year that we all focus on Thanksgiving.  Sad.  It should be every day because, “while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”  Isn’t that amazing?!  And what He accomplished can make us acceptable to God.  I’m so glad because I could never do it on my own…none of us could.


This week we will offer hope to 1,000 families by giving away a Thanksgiving meal…but really by offering them hope through salvation by faith in the One Who loves us the most.  I’m looking forward to sharing that time with you.  What a great joy it is to see, hopefully, many come to faith in Christ.  A great time of fellowship for us and a great opportunity for seeing many join the family of faith.


Be praying for them, as they come and hear the clear presentation of the Gospel  Be praying for us, that we will be faithful in sharing the Good News of God’s salvation through faith in Christ.  Be watchful for the work of Satan’s helpers as they try to disrupt what God is doing here.  Always prayerful.


Father, help us to see the people and their deepest need…You.  Help us to be mindful of that one factor that drives all that we do this week.  Help us to see opportunities to share a Gospel word at a moment’s notice.  Give us wisdom.  Thank you for the forgiveness of sin and life eternal.  May we walk in a fashion that is consistent with our professed faith.


Blessings to you.

Thanksgiving.  In November, in particular, the first thing that comes to mind is the holiday that we will celebrate on the 25th.  But Thanksgiving, for the believer, is something that should be on our minds basically all the time. It’s almost a cliche to say that, but it really is the truth. There are so many mundane things that are a part of our everyday thoughtful experience, but is being thankful one of those things? If you think about the random things that are a part of our mindful experience daily and you compare that to the amount of time that we spend being grateful, it really is pretty sad. Just stop right now and for the next 30 seconds think about all the things that have been on your mind today, and I’m talking about every little thing. Was gratitude one of the things? If you answered yes…congratulations… You are one of the very few.


But you know, thankfulness is one of the elements of living a peaceful life. Philippians 4:6-7, says, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”  It’s one thing to bring prayers and petitions before the Lord in times of anxiety or crisis; it’s an entirely different thing to do that with thanksgiving. The result is the peace of God which surpasses comprehension. I can’t understand it, or explain it, but I have peace in the midst the trial.  It does not mean that we are necessarily thankful for the trial, but we are thankful that God hears us in times of trial. And He is with us.


One of my favorite hymns says,


Shadows around me, shadows above me, Never conceal my Savior and Guide;

He is the light, in Him is no darkness; Ever I’m walking close to His side.


Heavenly sunlight, heavenly sunlight, Flooding my soul with glory divine;

Hallelujah, I am rejoicing, Singing His praises, Jesus is mine.


Walking in His presence with thanksgiving, brings a peace that is impossible to explain apart from His presence.  Make thankfulness a part of your daily thoughtfulness.  Watch what happens.


Lord, thank you for your presence in our lives.  It brings “heavenly sunlight” that goes along the way with us every minute.  Cause thankfulness to be and ever present part of the thoughts of our days so that we might experience the peace that comes from knowing You and being loved by You.  May we glorify You with our lives every day.


Blessings to you…

I was thinking today about sin. Isn’t that an interesting thing to be thinking about? But sin is something we engage in for various reasons. Not good reasons…to fill a desire…because we have been deceived into thinking it’s a good idea…to accomplish something without considering God’s way, but thinking we have it figured out…there are literally hundreds of motivations for sinning. The problem is, it’s always destructive because it is not consistent with the will of God for our lives. Dumb. 

It is idolatry. Anytime that I push my will against what I know to be God’s will for my life it is sinful. And that is me idolizing my desire over God’s. We all do it in one way or another. Sometimes it doesn’t even look like that big of a deal. In our minds we nuance it in a way that makes it seem very small. But even the smallest deviation from the will of God is sin. It is not a little sin…it is sin. It is the thing for which Jesus suffered and died. I have to come to terms with that…my sin contributed to His suffering. How could it be? What I did, what I thought, what I said…it wasn’t that big of a deal…or was it. And these aren’t even “senior moments,” times that I have forgotten who I am…these are times of willful disobedience. 

In Psalm 14:1-3, there is a scathing indictment of us all when God’s Word states: 

“The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good. The Lord has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God. They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt; There is no one who does good, not even one.” 

Really depressing when you think about it. We are all in the same boat…trying to be the lord of our own lives when He has reached out to us to give us better. Ephesians 2 says, “But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us…” What an incredible thought. That in spite of the description in Psalm 14, God reached into our lives and offers us cleansing and salvation, so that we might walk with Him in His path for His glory. What a joy. Let’s not lose sight of it. 

Father, today we are grateful for the great salvation that You have provided…in spite of all that we have done to rebel against You…You offer us forgiveness and salvation. Thank You for this great gift. May we live in a fashion that is consistent with Your will for our lives today. 

Blessings to you,

Were it not for Grace…I can tell you where I’d be…wandering down some pointless road to nowhere with my salvation up to me.  I know how that would go…the battles I would face…forever running but losing the race…were it not for Grace.  Those great words were recorded some years ago by Larnelle Harris and really reflect the truth of where we all are.  Were it not for God’s Grace, we would all be lost and in trouble. 


“Senior Moments” are times when we forget things that we know are important and forgetting them seems to be a disadvantage.  Forgetting that it’s God’s Grace that brings us salvation is a severe deficit.  We should never forget this and keep it continually on our minds.  Those thoughts create gratitude and a sense of assurance that our salvation is not up to us.  What a joy.  In Titus 2:11, we read, “For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desire and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age…” You see, it’s God Who calls us to salvation, provides that salvation and keeps us throughout our lives. My salvation is not determined by my performance. 


As we have learned in our study of 1John, performance is the result of salvation, not the genesis of it.  What a joy!! Because, as the song says, if salvation were up to my performance, I would truly be on “a pointless road to nowhere.”  I am so grateful for God’s amazing grace.


Amazing grace! How sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

That great hymn truly reminds us of how blessed we are.  Thank Him today for the blessing of Grace and the salvation it has brought to us.


Thank you, Lord, for grace and for the fact that You have extended it to us.  What a blessing.  My we live in a fashion that demonstrates that we are grateful and that we acknowledge that You are the source of our salvation.  We love You and desire to live our lives for Your glory.


Blessings to you…

This week, in our study in Colossians, in verse 6, there is a command to “walk in Him.”  And then what follows is an explanation of what is expected and what that looks like…a walk in Him.  I am reminded of an old hymn called O Master, Let Me Walk with Thee.  The words are:


O Master, let me walk with thee

In lowly paths of service free;

Tell me Thy secret, help me to bear

The strain of toil, the fret of care.


Teach me Thy patience; still with Thee

In closer, dearer company,

In work that keeps faith sweet and strong,

In trust that triumphs over wrong.


Walking by faith with the Lord can be a walk that challenges our pragmatism.  It doesn’t always make sense because a walk with the Lord can be costly and take us places we never intended to go.  We must think clearly about the faithfulness of God and His care for us in circumstances that take us out of our comfort zone.  This week we have a mission team in East St. Louis, Missouri.  They will be challenged by what they see and experiences they will have.  But God has them in a place where they can “walk” in fashion that is consistent with His will for their lives this week.  And by doing so, they have an opportunity to be used in way that will be useful to the folks there and bring glory to God in a way that they might not have done before.


It’s a real blessing to put yourself in a position to be useful to the Lord without considering the discomfort that might come from it.  And discomfort is often a reality, but it always brings a blessing.  Be praying, this week, for our team in Missouri, that they would be used in a great way for God’s glory.


We are sometimes so afraid of “senior moments” and the embarrassment that they can bring, that we protect our comfort zones and lose out on moments of service that fulfill God’s plan and purpose for our lives.  Don’t do it. 


Lord, help us to fulfill Your purpose for our lives today.  Let us walk with You in the path You have chosen.  May we live each day with great anticipation of what You will ask us to do, so that we can do it.


Blessings to you…

Fanny Crosby wrote,


With numberless blessings each moment He crowns,

And filled with His fullness divine,

I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God

For such a Redeemer as mine!


He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock

That shadows a dry, thirsty land;

He hideth my life in the depths of His love,

And covers me there with His hand,

And covers me there with His hand.


It’s a great hymn and it reminds us of God’s glory and power, and His ability to protect and provide according to His resources.  The hymn is based on Exodus 33:22 where Moses is having a conversation with God and asking to see His glory.  And the Lord says to Moses that “no man can see Me and live.” Vs. 20.  So, in verses 21-23, God says to Moses, “…Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock; and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by.  Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen.”


Moses was asking God for something that God knew would be harmful to him.  And God provided a way that would protect Moses from harm.  In our own weakness and lack of understanding, God provides for our needs.  In times of fear brought on by “Senior Moments” we sometimes make requests of God that He knows don’t represent our need in that moment.  It is truly wonderful to know that He hides us with His hand and provides for us exactly what we need.  He has promised to do that in Philippians 4:19, “…according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”


So, walk today assured that God is with you and that He knows your needs better than you know them yourself.  He loves you and will care for you and will provide for you.  What a blessing to walk with Him in the shadow of His hand.


Blessings to you.

In Revelation 22:8 and following we read,


“…I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed me these things.  But he said to me, ‘Do not do that. I am a fellow servant of yours and of your brethren the prophets and of those who heed the words of this book.  Worship God.’ “


Wow!!  That is really something.  That verse sums up major problems in our lives that lead to “senior moments,” no matter how old or young you might be.  The angel here is saying that we need to pay attention and make sure that our focus is appropriately directed.  So, the Apostle John is being shown so many fantastic and wonderful things, and he is being instructed to write it all down, and he is so overwhelmed at what he is seeing that he falls on his knees to worship the one who is revealing all of this, and the angel says, stop it…get your focus in the right place and worship God.


Now, when you think about it, our lives are fantastic.  In spite of all the problems and challenges around us, God has shown us and given us so much.  And we try to manipulate it all in such a way as to make our lives better and to be in control of all that we see and touch.  But He has given us His Word, which gives us everything we need “for life and godliness.” (2 Peter 1:3) He has poured into us all that we need to live this life and to enter into eternal life with Him.  What a tremendous thought.  The problem is that we become so enamored with our own abilities and strength, that we lose sight of the most important thing that we can do on this earth…worship God. 


And by failing to do that really well, we engage in “senior moments” that make us look foolish and demonstrate how weak we really are.  Stop.  Think.  Remember who you are and your purpose for being here.  The only way we can really fulfill our purpose is to begin by appropriately worshipping God.  Get that down first and all the rest of life will fall into place.  It’s what the angel was trying to tell John…stop looking at me and all the wonderful things I have shown you, and worship God…then you will understand all the rest and be able to communicate what God wants.


Remember these words?


O worship the King, all glorious above, And gratefully sing His wonderful love;

Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days, Pavilioned in splendor, and girded with praise.


Our prayer today…Father, we are grateful for You…we love You…and we worship You.  Cause us to remember in the middle of life’s distractions, that our primary purpose is to worship You.  You are worthy.  Thank you for loving us.

I’m teaching through the letter to the Colossians right now in our Wednesday evening Grace University.  We start this evening, and we will be looking at Paul’s greeting to people he had never met.  His letter was in response to the moving of the Holy Spirit and what he had heard about the church.  Paul begins by thanking the Lord for them and praying for them because he had heard of their faith in Christ and the love which they had demonstrated for other saints.  (vs. 4)


His initial response was to what they had displayed and to what had become their reputation.  They had demonstrated faith in their lives and had a reputation for loving the saints.  Now, there were problems, and Paul will address those in the letter, but his first comment about them was to reveal what others had seen.


Our lives are filled with many components…personality, jobs, relationships, hobbies, origin, etc.  The list can be long as we seek to identify ourselves.  But God has given us a new identity and that is found in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).  Are we mostly thought of in terms of that or of the multitude of other characteristics that we display?  What is most important to us and what do people see?  When people think of me, do they think faith and love…or something else?  It doesn’t have to be bad…but is it faith and love?


In 1924, B.B. McKinney wrote,


While passing through the world of sin, and others your life shall view,

Be clean and pure without, within, Let others see Jesus in you.


Your life’s a book before their eyes, they’re reading it through and through;

Say, does it point them to the skies, do others see Jesus in you?


Let others see Jesus in you, Let other see Jesus in you;

Keep telling the story, be faithful and true, Let others see Jesus in you.


Seeing Jesus in us is a guarantee of others characterizing us with the terms faith and love.  So a relationship with Jesus is the key. 


Lord, help us to always think of Jesus and our walk with Him.  May we always exhibit faith and love in our walk.  Would you use those characteristics to draw people unto Yourself through us.  What a blessing that would be.

Consider this: For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God. 1Corinthians 1:26-29.


…”So that no man may boast before God”…is the statement in these verses that really spoke to me…especially in light of what we dread…”senior moments.”  We do dread them because they indicate weakness as the result of long life.  And knowing that sometimes we display more independence before God than we ought, we need that reminder that He doesn’t really need us for anything.  When you look at this passage, you see that God will probably do the opposite of what we think is best.  The world, who think very highly of themselves, is going to be shocked when they see that God is going to use the weak to accomplish His task. 


So even in the weakness of my “senior moment,” God can and will still use me for His purpose.  I might not even be aware. So, you see, it is not so important that I evaluate my strengths and weaknesses, because I might not even fully understand them.  It is important that I make myself available to be used by Him for His purposes according to His will.  No second guessing, no argumentation…just obedience.


Do you remember this old hymn?


Then in fellowship sweet we will sit as His feet

Or we’ll walk by His side in the way?  What He says we will do,

Where He sends we will go: Never fear, only trust and obey.


Trust and obey, for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus,

But to trust and obey.


He might use us in our weakness to accomplish His task.  He might use us in our sickness to accomplish His task.  He might use us in our old age to accomplish His task.  Our job is not to evaluate our fitness in the moment, but to obey and trust Him for the outcome.


Blessings to you.

God is not someone to be challenged in the arrogance of our puny abilities. Yet sometimes we seem to do just that when we question our calling as believers or walk in fear relative to things we don’t understand. He says in His Word in Isaiah 46:8-9,


“Remember this, and be assured;
Recall it to mind, you transgressors.
Remember the former things long past,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is no one like Me.”


This is the God that we serve.  There is nothing hidden from Him in the past, in the present, or in the Future.  He has control which should bring us great comfort in times of trial.  It doesn’t mean that there will be no trials…it does mean that He will be with us in them. 


There is an interesting hymn written by William Poole in 1907, that really sums up a walk with Him.  It says,


Just when I need him, he is my all,
Answering when upon him I call;
Tenderly watching lest I should fall,
Just when I need him most.

Just when I need him most,
Just when I need him most;
Jesus is near to comfort and cheer,
Just when I need him most.


The more excellent news is that His presence is not limited to just when I need Him most…He is there at all times, in every season.  He is there in joy and in sorrow…in health and in disease…at all times, He is there. In our “senior moments” we tend to forget things that we think are important to us at that particular time.  Let us not ever forget that God is with us, He cares for us, and He loves us more than we can even understand or articulate.  What a blessing!!


Father, may we walk in such a way as to demonstrate our faith in You and Your care for us.  May the world see that we trust You and that our faith gives us strength to walk in the peace that surpasses understanding.  Thank You for loving us and caring for us.

I was reading this morning in Ephesians 5, “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.” What a powerful reminder for us in these difficult days. To be an imitator of God has tremendous impact on those with whom we come in contact, as well as ourselves.


Imitating God gives us a tremendous opportunity to be a witness to those with whom we come in contact. What happens is that they see Christ in us and are encouraged to follow him because of our witness. I’m not just talking about what they see in our lives, but what they hear coming from our lips. While our lifestyle is a valuable witness, what we say is most likely what the Lord will use in our lives to draw folks unto himself.


Imitating God is also valuable witness in our own lives. When we follow Him and model our lives after His ways, we are encouraged and are strengthened in our own walk. This is encouraged in the last three chapters of the book of Ephesians. So imitating God gives us a great testimony to others, but it also is a great encouragement to ourselves. Another way that we are encouraged in imitating God is in the words that we say. If we are continually negative in our speech and saying things that are inconsistent with God’s will, we will walk in discouragement and not experience the blessings of the Lord.


This is where the “senior moment” comes in to play.  We might forget functionally who we are in Christ as a result of what we say with our mouths.  Nothing has changed, but our momentary discouragement becomes more of an experiential reality because of the negativity of our own words.  This is the way a testimony works.  Good fruit is the result of a positive testimony and bad fruit is the result of the negative.  See how this works? 


So, the best ammunition against the negative “senior moment” is to be constantly bathing ourselves in the truth of God’s Word.  Quoting Scripture and reminding ourselves of the things that we have seen to be true throughout our lives in Christ, is good medicine to defeat the discouragement that comes from “senior moments.” 


Remind yourself today that Christ is with you.  He promised to be in the end of Matthew’s Gospel, when He said, “and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”  What a great reminder…and it’s true…He is with us now.  Remembering what Jesus has said, and living according to those truths, is a great way to imitate God. 


Lord, help us to remember today that You are with us and to reminds ourselves of that truth.  May we not grow weary as a result of all that rages in the world because we know that You are over the world and that we are in your hand.  We love you so much and are so grateful that we belong to You.  Help us share that good news with those around us.

Fear is a powerful force…one that no one wants to acknowledge in their life.  I think that is why the proverbial “senior moment” is such a negative.  It instills fear and demonstrates lack of control.  The truth is, most of our lives are lived completely out of control and we fool ourselves into believing that we are in control much of the time.  The Lord has probably protected us and preserved us in many situations in which we have no idea relative to His participation. 


How many bacteria or viruses have you been exposed to while eating in a restaurant or being overseas that didn’t make you sick.  Any idea? No.  How many times did you avoid an accident because you went back into the house to fetch that item that you forgot?  Don’t know.  How many thousands of interactions have you been protected from that might have been harmful to you?  I have no clue. 


The truth is, we have no idea most of the time about God’s interaction in our lives.  How He protects, or how He encourages, or how He works is often unknown to us.  Might it be important for us to be paying more attention to the course of our lives so that we could possibly see His work in progress?  Some of us live life on cruise control to the extent that we really don’t pay that much attention.  So much so that we just take for granted that we’re doing well without really thinking about how God is working.


I am challenged by this idea because I think that I am as guilty of taking God for granted as much as anyone.  And I think I need to stop doing it.  There is nothing like a good crisis in your life to sharpen your attention on God’s presence and providence for our lives.  I guess my counsel is to not wait for the crisis but begin to pay close attention right now.  I think “senior moments” are pretty normal for most of us as we age.  Nothing really to be alarmed about.  We just don’t like it because we think it makes us look dumb or out of control.  Actually, I think it’s an indicator of fear and weakness.  We should just acknowledge it and admit we are afraid.  But we don’t need to be.  The words of this hymn remind me of whose I am…


In the lightning flash across the sky his mighty power I see,
And I know if he can reign on high, his light can shine on me.
When the thunder shakes the mighty hills and trembles every tree,
Then I know a God so great and strong can surely harbor me.


I’ve seen it in the lightning, heard it in the thunder, and felt it in the rain;
My Lord is near me all the time, My Lord is near me all the time.


Father, thank you for being with us at all times.  Help us to rely on You and to be watchful for your activity in our lives so that we can appropriately give you glory for all that You do. What a faithful and loving Father You are.  Thank You for freedom from fear that leads to a lack of faith. Thank You.

I’ve had the lyrics to a song floating around in my head all day.  The song is called “The Steadfast Love of the Lord.” Great lyrics and great challenge for us all.


The Steadfast Love Of The Lord Never Ceases,
His Mercies Never Come To An End,
They Are New Every Morning, New Every Morning
Great Is Thy Faithfulness (Oh Lord)
Great Is Thy Faithfulness


Great lyrics.  And a great reminder for us all in times like these.  We seem to be inundated with bad news all around us.  The world is at war.  No peace.  Illness is everywhere.  No peace.  The future is uncertain.  No peace.  But in the middle of all this uncertainty…there is the steadfast love of the Lord that never changes.  He is with us every minute of every day.  And as we arise to face new days, His love is new every morning. 


The Scripture reminds us in Lamentations 3,

This I recall to my mind,
Therefore I have hope.
The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I have hope in Him.”

The tendency for us is to evaluate life based on how we feel and the experiences of the day.  Never forget that He is with you and that life is determined by Him, and that His love for us never fails.  That’s a great reminder in times like these…that just reminded me of another song!! I’ll save that for another day.

Slow down!!  Do you remember saying that a million times to your children…or someone else’s children?  Slow down! You’re going to fall!  Slow down! You’re going to break something!  Slow down! You’re going to knock someone over!  And then there were the…walk faster…you’ve got to keep up…what’s the matter with you…are you sleeping???  All these admonitions coming from us or being thrown our way are emblematic of our lives.  There always seems to be displeasure with the pace of the world and those who are walking in it with us. 


We get frustrated and take note of those who are walking with us when they don’t follow the pace that we set.  I often wonder what the Lord thinks about us relative to pace.  Our pace is not a surprise to Him since He knows everything from beginning to end.  It’s not like He is disappointed or surprised since He knew before we started, our decisions in life.  Disappointment requires an unmet expectation, and since He knows what we will do before we do it, His expectations of us are never a surprise.  But what does He think of the pace that we keep and what should be our response to His expectations?


1 Peter 2:21, says, “For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps…”  Could it be that the pace is not as important as the steps themselves?  I believe that the Lord is not looking necessarily at our pace, like we do with our children or others who walk with us.  He is looking more at our obedience, or whether we are considering His steps and the example that they have given us.  In other words, it’s not the speed we walk, but the accuracy with which we follow in His footsteps.  You may ask, “what does that look like?”  The question that needs to be answered in each of our lives is, “do my attitude and actions reflect the mind of Christ or do they just simply bring pleasure to me based on my expectations of life?” 


It’s a great question and one that will bring answers that will lead to change or confirm the steps of our lives right now.  I’m grateful for God’s Word and His Spirit.  These blessings are the source of knowledge that will lead us in the paths of righteousness.


Thank you, Lord, for not leaving us alone and giving us no direction.  Thank you that your admonitions are not condemnatory in nature but encouraging and equipping.  Thank you for being with us moment by moment and for the instruction of your Word and the empowering of your Spirit.  May we walk faithfully.

It’s been a great week for watching and observing the faithfulness of our Lord.  We saw many come to Christ this past Saturday during the Grace Boom Bash.  God continues to save folks in spite of what some say about the effectiveness of the Gospel and the work of the Church.  It’s truly amazing to see that people are being saved all around the world, and even in places where their salvation could cost their lives. 


It’s a miracle.  Have you ever noticed that when God does something it is never “too much” or “not enough?”  When I do things, they always seem to be a little out of line.  My “too much” is never a good thing…it always leads to some problematic outcome.  And my “not enough” sort of speaks for itself.  That’s why our “senior moments” bother us so much.  They can create both of these extremes and the outcome creates a problem for us.  The problem is that we focus too much on performance and not enough on obedience.  It is obedience that glorifies the Lord and takes the attention away from the performance.  Our consistent obedient witness might be more important than how many decisions for Christ we see.  The number is neither “too much” or “not enough.”


There is a hymn that really sums up the activity of our Father.  The words of the verses are really great, and the chorus makes a powerful statement.


My faith has found a resting place, not in device nor creed;

I trust the Ever-living One, His wounds for me shall plead.


Enough for me that Jesus saves, this ends my fear and doubt;

A sinful soul I come to him, He’ll never cast me out.


And then here’s the chorus:


I need no other argument, I need no other plea,

It is enough that Jesus died, And that he died for me.


The Lord provided all that we needed for salvation.  Not “too much” or “not enough.”  It is enough that Jesus died, and that He died for me and you.


Thank you, Father for providing that which is enough for our salvation.  Your perfect provision in every aspect of life is all we need and gives us comfort in the midst of the fear brought on by senior moments.  Help us focus on obedience and not performance.  Thank you for the peace that surpasses understanding.

I had an interesting “senior moment” yesterday.  The kind that you don’t really want to have.  I could not remember the name of someone I know very well.  She’s a co-worker here at the church.  Her name is not difficult…it’s only 4 letters.  I’ve known her since being here and I see her every day.  As a matter of fact, she sits just outside my office door.  How does that happen???


Isn’t it great to know that we walk with the Lord and that He doesn’t forget us or anything about us for even one nanosecond??  When the Word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, He told him that, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”  (Jeremiah 1:5) 


Now the same thing is true for us.  He knew us before we were born, and He has a plan and purpose for our lives.  We decide to obey or disobey…whether to trust Him and walk with Him and glorify Him…or make ourselves the focus of attention.  If we are the point, we will never know the fullness of His purpose for our path here.  What a shame.  I am reminded of the hymn from years ago that declares:


Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee.
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do,
If with His love He befriend thee.


Consider anew today what it might be that the Lord has for you and never forget that His presence and His awareness of you never ceases.  No “senior moments for the Lord.  Aren’t you glad?


Father, thank you for your never ending presence in our lives today.  You are the same yesterday, today, and forever and we are grateful.  Thank you for knowing us, loving us, and being with us in every moment.  May we honor you today and every day for your glory.

Read here the second verse of the old hymn, “O Sacred Head, Now Wounded.”


What thou, my Lord, hast suffered, Was all for sinners’ gain:
Mine, mine was the transgression, But thine the deadly pain;
Lo, here I fall, my Savior! ‘Tis I deserve thy place;
Look on me with thy favor, Vouch-safe to me thy grace.


In my Senior Moment today, I want to reflect on the sacrifice that was made on my behalf and the suffering that He endured for my salvation.  I think that often we lose sight of what He actually endured for our benefit.  Now I understand that what Christ did, He did for the glory of the Father (Philippians 2:11), but the result made possible our salvation.  And I also think that often we tune out the horror of it so that we don’t experience the depth of our sin.  I am a sinner.  I have committed thousands of them and only one of them made me unfit for Heaven.  So, He bore the depth of my sin and yours, on the cross that day (2 Corinthians 5:21). 


What a tremendous thing to do…give His life so that we may live.  The question then becomes, “am I living today in a fashion that demonstrates my gratitude for that gift?” I think that we become so consumed with the mundane activities of life that we lose sight of the tremendous cost of our salvation.  Could it be true that we go through even one day and never seriously think about the cost?  We go to the bank…we go to the grocery store…we go to the mall…we go out to eat…we visit friends…we go to church???  What? We go to church and never seriously consider the cost?  Could it be true?  Sometimes, I think, we go through the vicissitudes of life without even a thought for what our Lord endured to make it possible for “abundant life.” 


Hebrews 13:15-16 records the attitude we should adopt when it challenges us to, “Through Him the, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thinks to His name.  And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”


Lord Jesus, thank you for your sacrifice for our salvation.  Help us to remember daily the tremendous cost and the pain endured.  We want to walk faithfully in your path for your glory.  Father, thank you for the plan that made our salvation possible.  What a blessing it is to know you and to be known by you.  Our desire is to bring glory to you every day of our lives.

This is the first in a series of blurbs (that’s what we used to call them…I guess now they are blogs), that I’ll be writing to celebrate “senior moments.”  Now all of us of a certain age have experienced what we call “senior moments” and it usually refers to something that we have forgotten or cannot remember in that particular circumstance…and we use that term to excuse the moment.  There’s a lot of discussion about how normal that is at a certain age, but no one seems to know what age it is that it becomes normal.  As a matter of fact, I can remember using the terminology when I was quite young…especially when I had forgotten to do something that Teresa had asked me to do.  “I’m sorry dear…it was a senior moment.”  The only problem was…  I was 31 at the time…!


What I want to do here, is to use this space as a reminder of God’s faithfulness…God’s graciousness…God’s goodness…God’s salvation…God’s forgiveness…God’s blessings…God’s longsuffering nature…God’s generosity.  And the list goes on and on. 


Today I am reminded of God’s great faithfulness.  I often think of that hymn we used to sing…


Great is thy faithfulness,
O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with thee;
Thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not;
As thou hast been thou forever wilt be.


In Lamentations 3:22-23, we read, “The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” No senior moment there for any of us who are paying attention.  God’s faithfulness can be observed with very little effort.  Pray to the Lord right now and begin to recite all the evidence of His faithfulness in your life today and in recent days. 


Thank you, Lord, for loving us and caring for us and for making it easily seen.  You are so faithful, and we are so grateful.  Thank You.
